The past month has brought many sightings of next-gen Subaru WRX test mules in Legacy bodies, but these are the very first photos of an actual WRX prototype, and it isn’t like any WRX we’ve ever seen. At first glance, you might think this is just a WRX Wagon variant, but the bodystyle is actually that of a hatchback a la the VW GTI rather than a wagon! Subaru hinted at this style change with the B5 concept and it seems that the WRX models are following the lead of the concept with a dramatic makeover. We have actually heard rumors of Subaru dropping the Impreza name for the 2008 models, but can’t imagine they’ll drop the WRX designation. As for power, we are anticipating a highly upgraded version of the 2.5-liter H4 turbo with an output around 330 horsepower, and higher for some markets!

Anyway, enjoy these first shots of the next generation WRX, and leave us a comment to tell us what you think!
